This pullover is a style I've been wanting for some time, however I cannot seem to find measurements or st. count for different sizes in it ??????

This pattern was made in one size only. What size are you interested in? I might consider adding other sizes.

I would like probably an 18 (46" bust at finished size for a slightly loose fit) if that would be possible. I'm just now finding this beautiful pattern. I hope it's not too late for a response. Thank you.

Thank you,
it's a very nice sweater. I like the color lines in front and at the back of the sleeves, I don't know the technique to form the diagonal but I certainly will learn and knit this model.

I LOVE this sweater and would like to make it in a size 18-20. The problem is that I'm not knit-savvy enough to make the adjustments.
